I have some money coming from a grandfather he was wanting

Customer Question

I have some money coming from a grandfather he was wanting to give it to me now rather than wait till after he is gone. Would it be better to get it now or wait? How do we avoid giving it to the IRS?

How much money is in question?



Customer: replied 6 years ago.

$ 100,000 to $ 150,000

He can go ahead and give it to you now if he wants. He will need to file a gift tax return for the amount that exceeds $13,000. There should not be any gift tax due unless he has made over $900,000 in gifts in prior years.


You will not owe any tax on the money.
